GLOBAL FOSSIL FUEL CONSUMPTION

Posted on: February 22, 2021

Global fossil fuel demand data from 1900 to 2020 are provided by IEA DOT ORG are displayed above. LINK TO SOURCE: https://www.iea.org/reports/global-energy-review-2020/global-energy-and-co2-emissions-in-2020 The data show a 7% drop in fossil fuel consumption in 2020. In a related post we show the generally accepted view in climate science that the 7% drop in fossil fuel emission did not have a measurable impact on the steady rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration or on the rate of global warming.

This real world forced experiment in climate action contains useful information that should be taken into consideration in the construction of climate action policies by national governments where climate action has now devolved after the failure of the UN to re-create its Montreal Protocol “success” in the climate change issue.

The recently announced Biden climate action policy in January 2021 of the electrification of the Federal automobile fleet is expected to have less than 0.1% of the impact of the pandemic on global fossil fuel emissions. It means that we will need 1000 such climate action programs to equal the impotence of the pandemic in curtailing climate change. Climate action heroism is probably more politics than climate action.
